31 July 2022

Are you looking for fun wedding photo ideas? Wondering how to make your wedding unique–we can help with that. We believe that instant polaroid cameras like the Fujifilm Instax are the perfect addition to anyone’s big day.

There’s nothing like a wedding to bring people together, have fun and make unforgettable memories to cherish for years to come. Taking and sharing photos is one of the best ways to capture those memories, and it’s even better when you turn your big day into a polaroid camera wedding with Instax cameras.

With just the click of a button on your Instax camera, you and your guests will have super adorable, wallet-sized photos in a matter of moments. From personalised table names, place cards and photo walls to the endless entertainment and memories for guests, here are our top 10 ideas for using instant cameras at a wedding.

1. Give all of your guests an instant camera of their own

An excellent idea for the wedding reception is to place a few Instax cameras around the room (plus some extra camera film) and tell your guests to start snapping. Some will need more encouragement than others, but eventually, everyone will be having fun, creating their special memories of your big day. It’s lighthearted entertainment every generation will enjoy!

2. Capture multiple angles of your most memorable moments

Whether you have ten guests or 100, encourage all of them to fire off a shot of milestone moments - the kiss, your first dance, the cake cutting - or whatever they decide. At the end of the day, you’ll have a collection of Instax wedding photos from multiple perspectives, giving you even more memories to re-live.

The Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay Instant Camera is an excellent choice for this idea, allowing your guests to experience the joy of instant wedding photos in a modern way. The Mini LiPlay has 30 fun frame options to add character to your photographs, plus you can also record and attach sound to your images!

3. Set up a polaroid wedding photo booth

With a simple backdrop and a few props, you’ll have a fun polaroid photo booth wedding for endless amounts of wedding reception entertainment. One of the best instant cameras for photo booths is the Fujifilm Instax 300 Wide Instant Camera, which can produce vivid images with a broader point of view for fun group photos.

4. Create a polaroid photo wall next to the booth

A photo wall next to a wedding polaroid station is a fun way to decorate the venue for the big day and will quickly encourage guests to get involved, especially if you can only have one camera. Your photo station can be as simple as a wall with some blu tack, string, and pegs for a unique wedding reception idea on a budget. Just make sure there’s enough space for everyone's Instax wedding photos.

5. Let your guests create spontaneous, unique wedding albums

The glory of Instant photography is its immediacy. Place a simple brag book-styled photo album here and there, and encourage your guests to fill them up. At the end of your polaroid camera wedding, you’ll have multiple ready-made wedding albums to cherish and enjoy.

Your best partner in crime for the best instant photo wedding is the Fujifilm Instax Mini EVO Instant Camera will add a classic, classy old-world look to any wedding reception. With its advanced shooting features, the NEO boasts a refined retro design, enabling your guests to snap stunning photographs.

An Instax wedding guest book is an adorable way for guests to share their emotions and tell the happy couple how much they mean to them. Allowing your guests to pair these heartfelt messages with an Instax wedding snap adds more meaning and dimension to what will be one of your most treasured items for years to come.

7. Include Instax photos in your wedding reception decorations

Use your Instax camera to document the critical events leading up to the wedding day. Wedding dress shopping, the engagement party, hens and bucks nights, all these images, captured in that classic Instax-style, make excellent decorations for tables, party favours, or cake-toppers! Instax also offers a range of colours for your film’s border, such as this sky blue Mini Instant Film - so you can easily match your photos to your colour scheme.

8. Add some personality to table markers or seating plans

This one will take a bit of creativity on your part, but see if you can incorporate Instax photography to let guests know where they are seated as a more unconventional wedding idea. If you have enough time, we recommend setting up a polaroid camera photo booth with an Instax camera at the entrance to the wedding. Ask each guest to take a selfie, which you can use as personal table markers for your seating plan.

9. Get involved in the fun yourself

We know this is your big day, and you’re not going to have time to get your DSLR out and start shooting. However, if you are a photography enthusiast, having an Instax camera loaded and ready at the bridal table allows you to loosen up and have some fun the night. What's the point of having a polaroid camera for a wedding if the bride and groom can’t join in?

The  Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 makes selfie-shooting simple, thanks to a handy mirror at the front of the lens and a dedicated selfie mode, allowing you to simultaneously be the life of the party and the centre of attention in your photos!
